I dont caire if the Yankees are the best team in baseball there is nothing they could have done the last two days to win those games. Two of the best pitchers in baseball and they both belong to the Mariners. King Felix had paralyzing movement on his stuff last nigh and a change up that made the Yankees look like little leaguers in his complete game two hit shut out. One of those hits was a pop fly lost in the sun and the other was his only mistake pitch that Tex hammered for a double. Eleven strike outs later and the Yankees looked silly. With Boston losing to the Rays the Yankees hold on to thier one game lead in the East.

Tonight a Red Hot CC Sabathia takes the field and I predict the Yankees bats will come alive. Today its Ryan Rowland Smith going for the M’s so expect the Yankees to have a field day with his 6.18 ERA .

A minor move is expected to be made as the Yankees will most likely add Dustin Mosley to the Roster in order to prevent his out clause. My guess the ax will fall on Chan Ho Park to make room but we will have to wait and see. Todays line up has Gardner back in Left. The Yankees are a better team when he is in the game for sure. Here is a look at todays line up:

Derek Jeter SS
Nick Swisher RF
Mark Teixeira 1B
Alex Rodriguez DH
Robinson Cano 2B
Jorge Posada C
Curtis Granderson CF
Brett Gardner LF
Ramiro Pena 3B

LHP CC Sabathia
